Supporting scholarships and medical education

Educating future health care leaders

The University of Minnesota Medical School, with campuses in the Twin Cities and in Duluth, prepares students with the knowledge and skills they need to excel, whether in private practice or academic medicine. The Medical School’s Duluth campus also leads in educating doctors committed to family medicine and to serving the health care needs of rural and Native American communities. 

Thanks to scholarship support, the U enables talented students from diverse backgrounds to pursue training that will prepare them to become tomorrow’s medical and health care leaders.

Philanthropy makes a difference

Medical School students graduate with a median debt of about $200,000—making scholarships more important than ever.

Thanks to generous donors, the Medical School awarded scholarships from 674 funds totaling more than $3.3 million to 406 U medical students from both the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses in the 2016–17 academic year. The return on investment is clear: nearly 70 percent of  the U’s Medical School graduates choose to stay and practice in Minnesota—boosting the state’s medical workforce and its economy.
